Oestricher Lenchen Riesling Spätlese 1990

One to write home about 💘

Incredible color - a darker shade of gold. 🍯 Not as sweet as I expected but beautiful nonetheless. Might be peaking now, though...

I’m always so thrilled to drink a wine bottled before I was born, especially a
#Riesling (my heart!). 🙉

Nice. What level of seeetness did it have?

Auslese is as hint as to sweetness, but with aging would its expression vary?

Your right ofcourse; I was wondering about its overall sweetness level, as some ausleses are fully trocken and others very sweet.

Niedermenninger Herrenberg Spätlese Spätburgunder 2016

Tasted this bad boy in magnum! Not at all syrupy, as some sweet #Riesling can be. Super fruity and youthful in its bright, energetic flavor and not overly sweet. Sehr gut. — 23 days ago

Dry Riesling is crack cocaine.

Bom gelben Fels Trocken Riesling 2016

Yellow cherries, waxy fruits, grapefruit, chalk. Pleasing salinity. Big acids; really savory, broad and long. #weegmuller #pfalz #riesling — 13 days ago

Scharzhof Riesling 2012

A favorite from the #SommCon weekend. Rich, round and mouthwateringly delicious. My kind of #Riesling without a doubt! — 24 days ago

Weingut Ratzenberger

Steeger St. Jost Riesling Feinherb 2011

Typical Ratzenberger brilliance. Macadamia, cocoa butter, Queen Anne cherries. Just the slightest hint of slate, flint and sweetness. Mouthcoating, impossibly long, already becoming a haunting sort of thing. Who else can take a hot year and a GG vineyard and make an exceptional feinherb of it? #ratzenberger #mittelrhein #riesling — a month ago


Bacharacher Kabinett Feinherb Riesling 2016

Peaches, waxy fruits and subtle wet stones. Massive acidity negates whatever RS there is; it simply drinks dry and round. Complete, complex and satisfying. Typical Ratzenberger. #ratzenberger #riesling #mittelrhein — 10 days ago
